Great sound quality (bass).
SanjayKS
They didn't cancel out the engine or wind noise, but probably because they are very loud.
James Johnson
They need to be a little more honest with the description of this type of product .

Bought this pair at J&R (in-store price is cheaper than advertised). I'll mainly compare this with the ATH ANC23, which my significant other uses, and a pair of Hearos (32db) ear plugs. My main usage is for noise reduction -- not actually listening to music.

The Pioneer comes with four sets of plugs, while the Audio Technica only comes with three. It made a difference for me to get a better fit, though it might not matter to others.

Battery life is rated twice as long on the Pioneer than on the Audio Technica. Not sure how much of a difference this makes yet. No batteries required for the Hearos!

The Audio Technica has a volume control. This is significant. I haven't tried this out on airplanes yet, but I have a pair of Sennheiser noise-isolation earphones for which I have used on airplanes. If I set the audio volume to be the lowest setting on the airplane, then it's fine. Until the captain decides to make an announcement. That happens at a preset volume and is ... well, VERY LOUD on the Sennheiser. I ended up having to buy a separate volume control for use on airplanes.

The Pioneer has a button (you have to hold down) to pause the noise cancellation and the music at the same time. The Audio Technica only has a on/off button for the noise cancellation.

A fresh set of Hearos is surprisingly comfortable for 6 hours for me. The Audio Technica was around the same time. I haven't tried the Pioneers on for an extended time period yet.

So here's the main difference between the two noise cancellation headsets: the Audio Technica blocks out more noise. I can *easily* hear someone talk on the Pioneers, on the subway. It blocks out noise, but allows for more conversation.

I was looking for a pair of noise-cancelling headphones for my long-haul flights. I'd been researching different styles: circumaural, earphones, in-ear earbuds, etc. I've used Bose and the noise-cancelling was impressive. Problem is, Bose - and most other noise-cancelling cans - is expensive. It's also a little bulky despite clever packaging.

Then I read about this Pioneer on wired.com and decided to give it a try. For $99, it's not too big of a risk.

Turns out, I was utterly impressed. On Airbus A330 and Boeing 747, my wife and I were able to enjoy the in-flight programming without having to turn the volume way up. Pressing (and holding) the "Monitor" button let us temporarily turn off noise-cancelling, and the difference is significant.

The in-ear design already naturally blocks good amount of noise, and I think Pioneer engineers have done a terrific job implementing active vibration control in this tiny package. The result was an aural experience I'd never had before with earphones on a plane.

Comfort was also a main consideration for me, and I was quite skeptical about the ear-canal-massaging/ear-wax-compacting-type headphones. This pair, tho', was surprisingly comfortable - so much so that I was not constantly reminded of the fact that there's something sitting in my ear canals. My wife fell asleep several times while using the 'phones. That says a lot.

The box also comes with cabin jack adapter, four sizes of earbud sleeves, a battery and a carrying pouch. Very convenient and compact. The battery easily lasted our entire itinerary covering a total of 24,000 miles, and the headphones were in use at least half the time.

All in all, it's a great buy.

Pros: Effective noise cancelling, good sound reproduction, comfortable, compact.
Cons: (Just a gripe) Having to keep holding the "monitor" button to temporarily turn off noise cancelling can get old.

As others have compared this Pioneer product with the Audio Technica ATH ANC23 - Audio-Technica ATH ANC23 QuietPoint - Headphones ( in-ear ear-bud ) - active noise canceling - here are a few quick notes on the two when used during flight.

Having compared the Pioneer and Audio Technica models side by side on recent long flights, I find the Audio Technica to be a significantly better value. The major advantage of the Audio Technica is its superior sound quality during flight, which is a combination of its better noise-cancelling and good sound quality.

Both are comfortable, easy to use, and have acceptable battery use. I note that the Audio Technica is now slightly more expensive than the Pioneer, though they were similarly priced when I bought them. In my judgment, the Audio Technica is easily worth the few extra dollars.

(My review of the Audio Technica is at http://www.amazon.com/review/RRV80LRL8DGN0/ref=cm_cr_pr_perm?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B004K09H32.)

Color Name: BlackSize Name: SE-NC31C-
I'm someone who walks to work in a large city through some very noisy areas. A bus tunnel with trains running overhead, high volume traffic areas and normal city noises.

I found that when using a cheap set of iphone earplugs that I had to have my sound maxed out to only just hear music or radio and was still being bombarded with sound from around me. While when I'm in the office I only have it only the lowest or second lowest sound level.

I decided to get a set of noise cancelling earphones to block out as much of the ambient noise as I could and still be comfortable while walking.

After some research and reading the below two reviews I decided to give these Pioneer headphones a go. I was a little dubious due to the cost (AUD $200) as I'm in Australia and couldn't order from Amazon.

For the purpose I wanted these for I can't be happier with the results.

I stood in spot where the ambient noise is normally so bad that I can't have a conversation with another person standing beside me (under a train bridge right next to a buss tunnel with bus's constantly going by). With the earphones in I had my music on the second to third lowest volume setting and could hear it clearly and was not disturbed by the ambient noise around me.

As another poster noted these don't cancel all noise (i.e. people speaking, music) no ear bud headset will do that, however from my perspective these cancel echoing / high frequency / high base noises that cause all manner of hearing issues.

I can still hear a bus go by, but its noise is dimmed and the echoing noises it produces can't be heard.

They are reasonably comfortable. Took a day to get used to the unusual feel but now they feel quiet natural.

I have no trouble recommending these.
